It’s alright, I’ve never played this deck before.
Also you didn’t put your imp on the field anywhere.

True ! He’s looking around in Scav, and I wonder why I forgot that.

Many options this turn: Going for Garth madness and skip Tech for LB, Pick Graveyard and Rook, skip Tech I and go for birds, Tech I + Graveyard (bad option because of Garth + skele + StW, then Jandra destroys Graveyard), Or Tech I + Haunt + hero; even then, I can go for Geiger an threaten Now! on BC (if lucky) or Jandra (Bomber can’t be sure I workered her, especially with Imp on board, or Rook, for higher defenses and possible Birds. The latter has my preference, as birds can heavily damper any skeleton swarm, and sort of combo with StW (kill the weakest units, then die and return).

#6

summon rook

uhhhhhhhhhhhh necro present balance?


#7

OK, I guess I must have a break. Geiger summoned, and teching appropriately, as it seems Bird’s Nest isn’t a legal option ><. Also all my thoughts are, well, shit.


#8

Which deck did you enter with?


#9

I did enter the tournament with Necro/Balance/Present, but for some reason I was convinced I played with Necro/Strength/Present. All my fault.

I guess I must re-roll my hand, as I drew a card I illegaly teched ?


#10

Yes, definitely redraw. Any time you edit your turn.


#11

Edited both redraw and Geiger as a patroller. Sorry again for all this…


#12

Figuring it out on Turn 2 is probably better than if you hadn’t tried summoning Rook this turn, since you’d have had to roll back two turns when you tried playing a Strength card, and now you won’t make the same mistake again! I see this as a good thing. :wink:

No big surprise for now. Only question is: does Bomber go for LB or not ? Maybe StW may help me on next turn, but for now, I see very few ways to punish Tech II blood + LB. Good news is: he’s down on cards AND couldn’t thin his deck very much thanks to Imp, so I won’t see any Crashbarrow before turn 5, or with Garth’s maxband (but that’d be costly).

For now, I can either tech 2x Now! and hope drawing one (40%, 70% if I draw 1 more), or go for Tech IIs. I prefer the former, as Now! should be just as good on T5 (hoping Geiger survives 'til then), and This doesn’t force me to build tech II next turn, if I prefer (example), trade BC and revive from graveyard, play second BC, maybe StW, maybe Now!/midband Geiger/both.

As BCs have 2 health, Kidbapping won't kill any by itself. The worst thing would probably be Imp, but even so, Maxband Garth -> Hyperion should do.

On last turn I drew my entire deck, so my draw was 100%, hardly lucky. Besides, having 1 Now! on turn 4 would’ve sparde me from StW, netting me 2 skeletons (Now! on BC instead of StW to kill Jandra, using my graveyard, for the same gold cost; I create a skele instead of sacking one). That way I’d have had only one Now! for T5, but with 2 bonus skeletons, I could do pretty much the same (1 skele killing Mirror, and the other + imp trading with Crash bomber - I could even save my Deteriorate)

On this turn I’m lucky though.
